· I like the bulleted format and readable font.

· After receiving this book, I have found
it to be an important "go-to" text for
day-to-day practice in the emergency department.
· Well-organized and easy to follow, the
book helps direct diagnosis, treatment and
details criteria for either admission/discharge
or further consultation.
· I find the book to be helpful in practice.
It provides foundational information that
serves as a guide and it has been a valuable
resource for me.
· I found this book to be well written, easy
to follow and a great resource. I keep it
near my desk at work and use it often. The
author incorporates evidence based information
and up to date clinical guidelines. A wonderful
resource especially for the recent graduate!
· I am using the practice guide daily and
very much appreciate how valuable it is.
· I have used it several
times in the last few months and continue
to use it, particularly if I came across a
subject that I hadn't done in a while to jog
my memory for what to order.
· I bought it for the discharge criteria.
· I wanted to make sure that I was not
missing anything.
